Pres. Trump’s WH speech addresses national security, border crisis

Last evening, President Donald Trump made the compelling case for addressing the crisis on our southern border.

His prime time speech (9 minutes) was delivered from the Oval Office, stressing the seriousness of the issue that he is willing to go to the mat to fund. The partial government shutdown continues, with “non-essential” workers temporarily furloughed. These are the facts.

Pres. Trump is asking for $5.7 billion for security construction, a small percentage of what we give to foreign nations for their security. More than 200 countries receive American foreign aid. (Numbers supplied by the U.S. Department of State.) Additionally, the U.S. is assessed at 22% of the U.N.‘s budget to bolster the organization that consistently votes in opposition to our interests and those of our allies.

This Jan. 4, 2019 letter sent to members of Congress details the facts and figures relating to the open border and criminality. It also includes these words:

“It is the sovereign right of every nation to establish an immigration program in its national interest—lawfully admitting those who have followed the rules, while denying entry to those who break the rules or fail to meet the requirements established in law.

A nation that fails to control its borders cannot fulfill its most basic obligations to its citizens—physical safety, economic security, essential public services, and the uniform protection of our laws.”

In 2006 The Secure Fence Act (view senate votes) won the majority of Democrat votes and even Republicrat amnesty proponents McCain and Kyl supported it, along with Obama, Schumer, Hillary Clinton, Biden, Durbin, Specter and Feinstein.

Watching last night’s Democrat rebuttal was a study in political absurdity, with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who voted for border wall funding in 2006, now steadfastly opposed to any such measures due to his animosity towards Pres. Trump. Schumer currently calls a wall “ineffective.“ Pro-abortion House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who knows something about her description, termed the wall “immoral.”

It would be interesting to know if Catholic Pelosi had a similar discussion with Pope Francis, who lives in safety and security behind a massive 50-feet-tall, ten-feet thick wall surrounding the fortress that is Vatican City.

Unblinking, zombie-like Pelosi questioned the facts of a crisis posed by the thousands of illegal invaders caravanning through Mexico to our border from the Central American countries of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. After arriving at the border, these folks who so desire to be Americans, waved flags of their native countries and hurled rocks and bottles at the U.S. Border Patrol agents.

President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence will attend the Senate GOP Policy lunch today and will follow that by hosting a bipartisan group of congressional leaders at the White House.

Donald Trump won the 2016 presidency after distinguishing himself from 16 other Republican Primary Election candidates by campaigning on securing the border. 

Not dissuaded by the obstinate Democrats, he will travel to the U.S.-Mexico border Thursday to further detail the need for a wall.

    Nancy Pelosi and Poop Francis – what an appropriate combination that would be. Abortion-loving Catholic-In-Name-Only meets Socialist Pope-In-Name-Only. If only we could permanently catapult her to behind those Vatican walls.

    Speaker Nutsy Pelosi is not well. She suffers from Tardive Dyskinesia. Read here for causes and symptoms:

    For an explanation by a medical doctor watch here:

    Then remember the Ds placed her third in line for the Presidency.

      I just watched the fascinating video you supplied. Between Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton. who is also clearly afflicted with a major neurological disorder, the democrats will have to rely on the new crop of foul-mouthed radicals they just sent to D.C….and of course, Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren and nitwit Maxine Waters.

      I wonder how long we’ll have to wait to see Kyrsten Sinema vie for the leftist spotlight. She won’t be able to continue to take a backseat as these wack jobs grab all of the attention. Donning a pink fur boa for her swearing in wasn’t nearly enough. Wearing outrageous clothes is not what she wants to be known for. She wants to make a major political impact.

    Thank God for President Trump! Even Pima County Democrats I know support him. Schumer and Pelosi have no idea of what it’s like living along the border as Arizonans do. I am a Tucson native and have seen firsthand the results of the illegal invasion and its progression over the years. When I was a boy, farm workers known as braceros would come across the border, harvest the crops, send money back to Mexico, and after the seasonal jobs were finished, they’d return home to their families. My dad told me it was a federal program that began in the 1940’s since young Americans were serving in WWII and the crops needed to be harvested.

    Now they illegally invade our country with no intention of returning to Mexico. Picking crops is not the magnet. Benefits are. They also start new families here with the intention of using the infant citizens as a means to foster their own citizenship, through a foolish process known as chain migration, which is based on a misinterpretation of the Fourteen Amendment, that gives citizenship to anyone born on U.S. soil. It has spawned a birth industry and even something known as birth tourism, where wealthy Arabic and Chinese pregnant women come to the United States to give birth. They return home with their prized American citizen children.

    Juxtaposed against Schumer and Pelosi, Pres. Trump was nothing short of stellar in making his case, as they looked and sounded like spoiled brats.

    It’s interesting to see that the complaining Dems including Obama, Schumer, Biden, and Clinton supported funding for the “Secure fence Act” in 2006. These days, their hatred of Donald Trump is the force that moves them more than providing security for our own citizens.

    Amazing at the whining of Govt Employees who are on a paid vacation but very little when Americans lost their jobs to product manufacturing moving to China and Mexico in the past. Trump now needs to call Congress into permanent session and not allow any more 3-4 day weeks until this situation is settled.
